The evolution of the Grassland biome: exploring past events to predict future scenarios
ID: 912652
Start date: 2015-09-01, End date: 2016-08-31
Knowledge of the evolution of the grassland biome throughout the Earth's environmental history is important for the reconstruction of links between diversification/extinctions events and climate. Biomes are now being impacted by anthropogenic environmental change on an unprec...

Evaluation of Methyl-mercury production and decomposition by using Hg-197 radiotracer produced out of mercury enriched in Hg-196 isotope
ID: 908724
Start date: 2009-12-16, End date: 2010-12-15
Mercury (Hg) is in the form of monomethylmercury (MeHg) a biological neurotoxin, harmful to the wildlife and to humans. MeHg species is produced from Hg2+ by natural processes occurring within the water bodies. MeHg can also be degraded by natural processes; therefore, the ne...

Carbohydrate utilization by the working muscle of rainbow trout
ID: 909581
Start date: 2012-11-01, End date: 2013-10-31
Carbohydrate-rich diets are frequently used in the commercial farming of fish. However, fish do not appear to have an elevated capacity to clear a high load of glucose from their circulation. Special attention has been directed towards the study of the physiological responses...

Mathematical models for diffusion controlled systems: diffusion on cell membrane, cluster formation and maintenance
ID: 909375
Start date: 2012-07-01, End date: 2013-06-30
Assembly of transient and stable signaling platforms in the plasma membrane of cells has been implicated in functions as varied as death and survival, polarity, differentiation, migration, cell-cell communication, virus entry, exocytosis, endocytosis. Naturally, the assembly ...

Development of the circuits in the locust brain for the early detection and avoidance of looming objects
ID: 909208
Start date: 2011-09-01, End date: 2012-11-29
Looming detection is crucial for animals to efficiently respond to approaching stimuli. Extensive research has been done to characterise and understand the neural circuits underlying such capacity. The locust has been established as a preferred model because it has a pair of ...

Optical dissection of cortical dopamine signaling
ID: 912061
"Coordination, execution and learning of skilled movements strongly depend on motor cortex function, which, in turn, depends on the modulatory action of different neurotransmitters. In particular, dopaminergic inputs to the motor cortex have been associated with synaptic plas...

THE ANDES-NAZCA DYNAMIC TOPOGRAPHY EXPERIMENT
ID: 909954
Start date: 2013-04-01, End date: 2014-03-31
"In the world, there is a relative paucity of studies that correlate surface data with deep Earth processes. The main objective of this experiment is to introduce a series of observations from geology (basins, thrust belts and plateaus) to constrain mantle flow models and bet...
